It helps me keeping track of all the requests. Beats spreading them over half a dozen talk pages ;-)

Parliament building of Benin[edit]

Greetings,

I saw the picture mentionned in the subject on the Benin page as well as Porto-Novo page. And it is written that it is the siege of Benin Parliament. Please, note that this is wrong. The building name in French is Palais des Congrès which can be litteraly translated as Palace of Congress, but its purpose is just to host events like seminars, conference and meeting. Benin Parliament siege is the "Palais des Gouverneurs" in French. And it is located in Porto-Novo, not Cotonou. Since i'm not used to editing wikipedia articles, I think i might let you know so you can correct this.

Best regards

Gildas Jr.

Photo of inside of Cappella Palatina[edit]

Hello, Magnus.

Would it please be possible to have your permission to use your photo of the inside of the Cappella Palatina, specifically the one that shows the upper wall and part of the stalactite ceiling? I am writing a book on Norman Sicily and would really like to use this as the composition is so unusual. Thank you.

The Vernaccia pic[edit]

Hi, my name is Marco. I just would like to tell that the pic uploaded in the Vernaccia article it is not a Vernaccia from Sardinia, but (as stated on the label on the bottle) is a Vernaccia di San Gimignano. These two wines are quite different. I think the caption should be corrected. Best regards

image on wikipedia entry for margaret cavendish[edit]

Hi Magnus,

The image you uploaded on the Margaret Cavendish page in Wikipedia does not represent her. According to her biography, Mad Madge, it is an image of Mary Lucas, her sister. Is it possible to remove it? It is misleading as is. This is the link to the image: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Margaret_Cavendish.jpg

Thanks!

please delete this picture, it's of me and i can't figure out how to delete it[edit]

Mislabel leading to Embarrassing Situations "Patch Adams at Sarvodaya.jpg"[edit]

Hello Magnus, My name is Derek Busby, and I am the assistant to Dr. Patch Adams. I am writing to you because the picture entitled "Patch Adams at Sarvodaya" has been incorrectly labeled. This picture is actually of Dr. Bowen White: http://bowenwhite.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/IMG_3774.jpg . While Drs. Adams and White are both amused by the mix-up, this picture has been used on several wikipedia pages (Spanish and Italian at least), and has been picked up by fans who came to believe this was a picture of Dr. Adams. We now have T-Shirts and a statue which feature the image of Dr. White, which have been presented to Dr. Adams--much to the confusion to all those involved. So, I would ask that you please edit this picture to reflect the reality that this is an image of Dr. Bowen White. Thank you. -Derek

Photo Use[edit]

Hi Andrew, I used your awesome "JAWS" photo in a graphic. I ended up changing it quite a bit, but I still wanted to check with you before I publish it. Can I email you a copy? Thanks! Sarah sarah@inttradingusa.com

Missing first Upload on Pictures from Wikipedia transferred to Commons[edit]

For Exemple this Picture: File:Ellok371002CD.jpg

First Upload was before I have it downloaded, before 2008-04-10 00:09.

Users Date is not secure, first Upload is very important.

Und das Ganze nochmal auf Deutsch / in German Language:

Ich vermisse die Angabe, wann das Bild das erste mal auf Wikimedia/Wikipedia hochgeladen wurde. Die Angaben des Uploaders, wann das Bild fotografiert wurde, sind nicht verlässlich. Deshalb wird das Datum des 1. Upload benötigt, weil dies das einzige zuverlässige Datum ist.

mfG / with friendly Greetings

Die Datei wurde ursprünglich am 9. Juni 2007 um 20:14 auf de.wikipedia.org von Benutzer:Ketamin hochgeladen. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:23, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

De-adminship[edit]

Dear Magnus,
it is with a regret that I inform you that, following our de-adminship policy, you had your administrator rights on Wikimedia Commons removed today by a Wikimedia steward.

I would like to use this opportunity to thank you for your efforts and contributions in making Wikimedia Commons what it is today (no big words intended!). If you'll feel like doing so at some point, please feel free to re-apply for adminship at COM:RFA. Again, thanks for all the help you gave us, and (hopefully) see you back soon! odder (talk) 20:49, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

I second that. Thanks for your great inventions. See, something like cat-a-lot is still in use. -- Rillke(q?) 22:06, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
It appears that Magnus has made 8 edits to the MediaWiki: namespace during the past six months. In the past, we used to count such edits an admin actions, even though they are not logged in any logs, and not visible in the inactivity tool that we are using. @Magnus, please accept my apologies for putting you in this situation — if you'd like to get your admin bit back, please say the word. Thanks, odder (talk) 07:38, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Magnus, please stay! --Nemo 07:41, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks guys, I'm not leaving :-) I only ever had admin rights here to test tools that require it, as I stated in my original admin "candidacy". Not working on any of those ATM, so this is fine. --Magnus Manske (talk) 07:47, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

My picture on my page ListFiles[edit]

hello, My picture https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rorqual.JPG was imported by your bot and it is not on my import page on wikicommons: https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:ListFiles/Jfcapdet&ilshowall=1

How can I list this image in my imported list files? I think is because the user is : 'File Upload Bot Magnus Manske' and not 'Jfcapdet' : how to change it? and is it possible ?

(Sorry if my english is ugly, I'm french)

Hi, yes, that is because someone used my bot to transfer the image to Commons. There is no easy way to change that; if you have a higher resolution version of the image, you can re-upload it under the same name. However, Commons is slowly moving to a "real" database to track authorship. This will take all of 2014 and most of 2015; however, after that, all your files should list automatically, without you having to do anything. --Magnus Manske (talk) 23:06, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
ok, thanks , no problem, I shall wait two years. I'm in no hurry.
